  1. Can you give us an educated guess as to when the winners will be announced? And will they be notified by email before the announcement on figment?

    • We are unable to provide an estimated time for winner announcements, as they depend on a variety of factors both within and outside of our control. In most cases, potential winners will be contacted by email before they are announced.
